Sherman moves into unsuppliable territory as he crosses the fall line from the western theater to the eastern. The rivers run the wrong way and the railroads are virtually nonexistent for the purposes of Union supply.

The only way to supply any Union army in these parts is off the land.

Please recall that the 4 largest cities in Confederate areas after 1862 are the the armies of Northern Virginia, the Potomac, Tennessee and the Tennessee. Their supply needs dwarf all local populations.
